Open Set 2016

The sixth edition of Open Set will take place from 24.07 to 06.08.2016, a two-week long series of workshops, public interventions and lectures. The event aims to promote and enhance the social value of design by facilitating debates around the chosen theme from a rich diversity of cross-disciplinary perspectives and socially engaged cultural practices. 

Open Set is being hosted by Kunstblock, a Rotterdam based foundation set up by five cultural institutions on the Witte de Withstraat. The various workshops and presentations of the Summer School will take place in different Kunstblock affiliated locations.

Open Set 2016 is made possible by the generous support of Creative Industries Fund NL and the public symposium is organized in collaboration with the Institute of Network Cultures.
